With a background in dance, theater, and drag, Mx Qwerrrk brings a unique and dynamic energy to their work, captivating audiences and sparking important conversations about gender identity and expression.

She first made a splash onto the fashion and nightlife scenes when she left her native sty in Berlin and turned up and out at the Marc Jacobs Fashion Week party in NYC. Recently, she was asked to be the spokespig/cover gurrrl for Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field’s Art/Fashion Exhibition. Since then, the gender non-conformist creature has been seen in Vogue magazine, MGMT’s “My Little Dark Age” promo, hosting Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter makeup launch, The New York Times, i-D magazine, Paper Magazine, Daily Mail, Out Magazine, W Magazine, Essence, Fashion Week Daily, The Village Voice, and spotted at all the most glam spots (and some dirty ones) and events, twirling on the dance floor, mugging for the cameras, and reporting back to WOW on all her little adventures.

QwerrrkOut is where LGBTQQIA kiddies and their friends can have photos/videos of themselves featured on the QwerrrkOut page on IG, by tagging or taking a photo of QwerrrkOut on their pages. The imagery should capture them queering out and being their authentic selves on the street, in the club, in the boudoir; wherever and however they feel cutest! QwerrrkOut offers gays, lesbians enbies, and other queer-identified individuals a unique platform to make the world GASP by boldly displaying Gay Anarchy and Sex Positivity.
“Somewhere, during the trajectory of the gay rights movement, queers learned how to hide in public,” proclaims Mx Qwerrrk. “We learned how to pass. Appearing gay became a negative. The whole ‘No fems, masc only, no Blacks, no Asians’ ideology fueled our internalized homophobia. It’s time we queens got back to celebrating our individual fabulousness. There’s too much beige Hollister and Abercrombie bullshit going ‘round! It’s about showing our strength in numbers on a platform where individuality is celebrated,”. Mx Qwerrrk drew inspiration for QwerrrkOut from the politics and anarchy of the 80s gay advocacy group ACT UP. “To make real change, we have to start with ourselves,” continues Mx. “We need to take a deep, long look at who we are, smile, take pride, and then QwerrrkOut!”
